Q. What exactly is Nisus DSV?
A. Nisus DSV is a disinfectant, sanitizer and virucide. It is a concentrate of four active ingredients (quaternary ammonias) and is diluted before use. Nisus DSV concentrate contains the following active ingredients: Octyl Decyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride, Didecyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride, Dioctyl Dimethyl Ammonium Chloride, & Alkyl Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride
Q. “Human coronavirus” is on the label as a target organism. Since SARS-CoV-2 is a type of human coronavirus, can we claim efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 virus, the cause of COVID-19?
A. SARS-CoV-2 is a new or novel virus. Only two categories of products may claim efficacy…those products which are part of the emerging pathogens program and those products not part of the program, but which EPA has deemed effective against SARS-CoV-2. Both categories of acceptable products are found on List N, published by EPA. The base for Nisus DSV, 10324-80, was added to EPA’s List N on 3/13/20. As a result, EPA has determined that Nisus DSV is effective against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. EPA instructs applicators to follow the label instructions for (human) coronavirus. The label rate is 2 oz. Nisus DSV per gallon of water with a minimum of a 10-minute contact time. A thorough application is needed for success.
Q. Is any product labeled specifically for the control of SARS-CoV-2?
A. No. As of March 2020, no product is labeled specifically for SARS-CoV-2. The virus was only identified in late December 2019, so no labels have that strain listed.
Q. Does Nisus DSV leave residual protection and when may it be reapplied?
A. Once the product dries, no residual should be expected. This is true of any “quat” product on hard non-porous surfaces. There are no restrictions as to time interval to reapply.
Q. What is the difference between sanitizing and disinfection?
A. Sanitizing means to reduce the number of organisms to a level of no health concern. Disinfection is killing 100% of organisms on a surface.
